Children across the school watched an absolutely delightful performance today with the KS1 school nativity!
Children delivered their lines loudly and clearly, making sure that the audience knew the story as it unfolded on the stage. The costumes were amazing (a big thank you to all the people at home who had contributed to these working tireless to perfect them!)
Parents, relatives and friends are in for a real treat as the week progresses, when they see the performance! The school certainly enjoyed the amazing acting, super singing and dancing during this morning’s nativity show! Well done to everyone in KS1 and good luck for the coming performances!

Today in assembly, the hall was filled with generous donations from children and parents across our school community, who have been donating produce and goods to our school, so that we can pass this on to the Caring Hands Charity. This is to help people in our local area who have less than we do. If you would like to find out more about this charity, look at their website here…

Today. children in the Reception class performed their class assembly to the whole school, with an excellent information about their work in school.
Starfish and Seahorse classes told the school about their work on looking after the duck eggs, as well as their visit to the local farm with Bedenham school too. They also presented their work on SuperPotato – showing us a range of their work and drawings. They explained that the evil pea had stolen their class teddy, which the children then had to use clues to save him!
They also showed us a selection of their superhero outfits, which the Starfish and Seahorses have been wearing in lessons too! They also performed a great song by the “Let’s Go Heroes” which the children sang along to as well.
A brilliant assembly, where children were very brave to speak to the whole school (and their parents) in a very busy school hall. Well done!
